In Response To: Re: MILDEW STAIN ON ROOF SHINGLES (Chuck)

I stand corrected on the algae discoloration and algae resistant shingle (generally a non consideration here in the northeast)....However the link does NOT mention a mildew or moss resistant shingle... I am not aware of any such product.

Standard treatment in the NE is to apply zinc strips...

The question remains to the original poster:

What IS the source of discoloration of your shingles?

Mold? Mildew? Algae? Moss? Metal deposits? Other?

Until you can decisively diagnose the problem, there is no cure forthcoming....
